Hey Lyric! An Bachelor of Arts (BA) tends to be a little more broad than the specified field, so in this case that would be Biology. You will take courses in the liberal arts and be more well-rounded. This may be good for students who have multiple passions and want to take classes in various areas. A Bachelor of Science (BS) will be more focused on biology and you may have less of a chance to explore areas outside of your major. Hope this helps!

Not really sure if you can get a B.A. in Biology. At my undergrad university, if your degree plan was for a B.A. you took a foreign language in lieu of 8 hours of science. Since you are going to be a science major, I would suspect that you would more than meet the science requirement and not take a foreign language.
